This year's GoDaddy Bowl between the Bowling Green Falcons (10-3) and Georgia Southern Eagles (8-4) features the champions of the Mid- Conference and the third-place finishers in the Sun Belt Conference.
Both teams are undergoing head coaching changes in this game, after Bowling Green's Dino Babers and Georgia Southern's Willie Fritz left for new opportunities after the regular season. This is the Eagles' first ever bowl game, while the Falcons are playing in their fourth consecutive bowl game.

Ellison rushed for 642 yards and eight touchdowns this season, and passed for two more. Ellison makes the Eagles' powerful option offense go.
